Things happen in life. If we always choose to ignore the problems, it will eventually snowball into a much bigger crisis. This means that we need to take care of the issues first even if it will sometimes bring us down emotionally. In order to stay motivated through these events, it is imperative that we stop ourselves from feeling unmotivated while we take care of these problems.
One great way to do this is just discuss the problem with encouraging people. These people are easy to spot because they are happy most of the time and often have more friends than everyone else. People naturally hang around them because they offer advice and talk about solutions rather than tell you why your situation can’t work.
Talking with them about your problem is great because they make you feel better that your solution will work. In addition, they will probably offer a few suggestions of their own to help. For example, I felt bad last night because my job and blogs were all becoming a little overwhelming. What ended up happening was that my wife took me out on a nice walk where we talked about things and I felt much better afterwards, and even wrote a post about it.
Of course, encouraging people will never be able to solve your problems completely. They can only offer advices and allow their optimism to “rub off” on you. It’s still up to you to approach them, present your problem and ultimately solve them yourself. If you talk things through with encouraging people though, you will be off to a great start in solving your issues and staying motivated.
